Record cold temperatures possible

Posted: Updated:

The Arctic air that brought eastern North Carolina a rare November round of snow is also making its mark with possible record low temperatures Wednesday night into early Thursday morning.  Greenville’s record low temperature is 23 degrees, set in 1976.  The National Weather Service lists some other record low temperatures in the 9 On Your Side viewing area for November 14th :  Kinston 21 (1977),  New Bern 26 (1976), and Washington 28 (1906).

Storm Team 9 is forecasting low temperatures in the middle 20s inland and lower 30s near the beaches Wednesday night into Thursday morning.  Therefore, eastern North Carolina could be setting new record low temperatures.  Make sure to check on those who may be dealing with a lack of sufficient heat to stay warm.  Also, make sure that your pets have a warm place to stay away from this Arctic chill.
